We seek scholars whose research engages directly with schools and communities and focuses specifically on any of the following (or related) research areas: 1) race and teacher education; 2) anti-racist and liberatory pedagogies; 3) culturally- and linguistically-sustaining pedagogies; 4) the dynamics of inclusive classroom cultures particularly for minoritized or multilingual learners; 5) equity-oriented teacher education practices and program designs; and 6) equity oriented practices of assessment or technologies.
Social Studies Education We seek scholars whose research and teaching interrogate and build robust historical thinking and civics education through exploring questions such as: 1) What deep funds of social studies knowledge do minoritized students and their families share and practice? 2) How has student, teacher, and/or community activism against systemic oppression evolved among diverse, intersectional populations, including indigenous, racial, ethnic, refugee, multilingual, gender minority, and disability groups? 3) In what ways can educators respond as intersectional-allies with and for students and their families including, for example, trans* and non-binary students and English language learners? And, 4) How might such knowledge, struggle, and allyship transform curriculum, instruction, historical thinking, civics and civility, and the democracy in which they are situated?
